Helpful Hints and Scaffolds
, Week Seven General Discussion
by Chris Jobling.  This is really just a pointer to the Scaffolds and helpful hints for course discussion that Susan O'Grady started back in week 2. There are a number of tools mentioned there that are relevant to "what exists" part of this week's topic PLE/Ns Tools - What Exists, What is Being Built? I'm wondering if there would be any value of cross-linking some of the gems from week 2 into a wiki or other community-built list of resources. I'd be prepared .... [Link] 2010-10-26T16:40:09

toaven't got nails yet!
, Week Seven General Discussion
by Vilimaka Foliaki.  I know that we are required to build something with the tools that we've learnt in the past 6 weeks. So I guess I won't be sent to the corner this week for being too unprepared! The problem is that I feel that I haven't got adequate knowledge about how to improve the functionality of those tools that I've learnt. To improve the functionality of these tools I guess requires some understanding of programming and other tech stuff. At the moment I&.... [Link] 2010-10-26T11:33:56
